A GOOD LAUGH for a GOOD CAUSE!
May 21, 2015
Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh. The inaugural Red Nose Day will be held in the US on May 21, 2015. Red Nose Day, the U.K.'s #1 television fundraising event, is coming to America in a spectacular live star-studded special Thursday, May 21 (8-11 p.m. ET) on NBC. Supporters wear bright red noses (Á la clowns), and everyone has a good laugh for a good cause.
Gavi, GGI’s vaccine delivery partner via the Gavi Campaign, is one of the charities for this event. The GAVI Campaign is a US public charity whose mission is to support the work of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, with a goal of world-wide vaccination by 2020.
The money raised during Red Nose Day will be used to fund programs that address the immediate needs of children and young people living in poverty in the U.S. and internationally in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The money will be split between domestic and international poverty issues. The pre-selected charity partners are Boys & Girls Clubs of America; Children's Health Fund; Feeding America; Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance; the Global Fund; Lift; National Council of La Raza; National Urban League; Oxfam America; Save the Children and United Way.
